More About Compel Them to Come in
One out of every five Americans lives with the daily challenges of some form of disability. Eighty percent of this group has no home church home to call their own. For twenty-eight years Special Touch Ministry has served the spiritual and felt needs of thousands of people with physical and intellectual disabilities across the nation. In addition to direct ministry through the Summer Get Away vacation/retreat program and local chapter support groups, its representatives have taught at numerous churches and conferences on vital issues related to disability awareness, advocacy and ministry across the country. Now Special Touch presents a tool to help local pastors and congregations touch the lives of people with disabilities in their communities. Compel Them to Come In: Reaching People with Disabilities through the Local Church is both a disability ministry conference between two covers and a journey into the world of disability as seen through those who live there. At the heart of the book is the premise that every person, regardless of their condition or disability deserves a presentation of the gospel at their level of understanding. Compel Them to Come In presents discussions on the following topics: The Biblical foundation and mandate for disability ministry How churches can start an outreach to people with disabilities in their community A Biblical strategy for evangelism How to Present a Disability Awareness Sunday Including Students with Special Needs in your Sunday School Whosoever Will May Come: People with Intellectual Disabilities and Worship Understanding the Unique Needs of People with Mild Intellectual Disabilities Inside the Prison Bars of Physical Disability The Crisis and the Covenant: Physical Disability and Marriage Making the Cross Accessible to the Blind and the Vision Impaired With much more to everyone with an accessible heart and a desire to make a difference on an adventure of a lifetime
